While diving with eco2, why not relax in the informal surroundings of our sister establishment, Ten Degrees South.

The Ten Degrees bar and garden restaurant is renowned for the best food in the area, with Saturday night barbecues in peak season, and the tastiest (and biggest) breakfasts. On the side of the hill, the Sundowner platform also provides a stunning outlook over Mikindani Bay for watching the sunset while indulging in a Ten Degrees Margarita.

The elegant guesthouse rooms are in a renovated 1920s Swahili-style house with shared shower and toilet facilities. All rooms are tastefully decorated in the local style and have fans and huge netted beds.

For a little luxury the Ten Degrees bandas offer en-suite accommodation with a private terrace overlooking Mikindani Bay. The rooms follow traditional Swahili style architecture and offer large double beds with fans, mosquito nets and hot water showers.

Nearby attractions and activities:
Mikindani is a small, quiet fishing town, west of the region’s capital – Mtwara. It is backed by hills of lush vegetation with a skyline broken by the searching branches of baobabs and coconut palms. Walking into the hills provides a chance to experience the stillness of the area and rewards you with a view of the almost enclosed azure bay, which was once a busy harbour full of dhows trading slaves, ivory and copper.

A stroll through Mikindani itself reveals old colonial buildings giving the town a gentle grandeur, open balconies overlook the street and doorways are surrounded by Zanzibar-style carvings. Mikindani’s claim to fame is that in 1866 David Livingstone stayed here for a fortnight before embarking on his fated third and final expedition to discover to the source of the Nile, from which only his heart returned - in a wooden box.

By air, Precision Air flights to Mtwara from Dar es Saalam leave daily, and airport pickups can be arranged on request.

By road, Mikindani is an hour South of Lindi and 12km north-west of Mtwara.

Prices range between $20-80 per night and include breakfast.
Seasonal pricing policy is in place, and deposits are required for peak season bookings.
